How To Make Christmas Fudge~




YUM~I love fudge! When Christmas comes I have visions of fudge dancing in my head. Nothing speaks to me like Christmas fudge and an iced cold glass of milk. It is really easy to make. The secret is making sure you boil it to soft ball stage. 


You know it is at soft ball stage when you drop a little of the boiling goodness in a cup of cold water and you can form a soft little ball out of it with your hands. It is at the soft ball stage. 


CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE


  • 4 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow creme
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

  • * Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.

  • *In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, brown sugar, butter and evaporated milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and boil for 7 minutes. (Check for soft ball stage.)Remove from heat; stir in marshmallow creme until well incorporated and melted. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla until smooth; spread in prepared pan. Let cool before cutting into squares.

BUTTERSCOTCH FUDGE


3 c. sugar
3/4 c. butter
1 (5 1/2 oz.) can evaporated milk
1 (12 oz.) pkg. butterscotch pieces
1 (7 1/2 oz.) marshmallow creme
1 c. chopped nuts (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla




  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, butter and evaporated milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and boil for 7 minutes and check if it is at  a soft ball stage. Remove from heat; stir in marshmallow creme until well incorporated and melted. Stir in butter scotch chips and vanilla until smooth; spread in prepared pan. Let cool before cutting into squares.

MY FAVORITE ~CHOCOLATE FUDGE


2/3 cups butter
3 cups sugar
2/3 cups evaporated milk
1 pkg. semi sweet chocolate
7 oz marshmallow cream
1 tsp vanilla




  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, butter and evaporated milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and boil for 7 minutes or to a soft ball stage. Remove from heat~ pour in chocolate chips, marshmallow cream and vanilla until smooth; spread in prepared pan. Let cool before cutting into squares.
    I put mine in the fridge to cool!

That's the exact peanut butter fudge recipe I use and it's wonderful! I've never tried the butterscotch one. When you say butterscotch peices, do you mean butterscotch chips in a bag? I'm going to have to try that one. My hubby loves butterscotch! Ohhh and I'm going to try that exact chocolate fudge recipe too this week. I made one a few weeks ago with cocoa and wow, was that rich! Sooo yummy! I'll have to post that recipe for you :)123

Oh how wonderful...
I'm going to print these off and get them in my recipe book! I love love love fudge. My mom has a excellent recipe but it takes so long to cook getting to the "soft boil" stage or something. This will be so much easier and I'm sure delicious.
Hope you had a great Saturday.
A couple of my girls and I went to Olathe and got some shopping done. Have also been ordering online and REALLY loving doing that! HA! Got a Bath and Body order and wanted to keep it for myself! YIKES!
Going back to KC tonight to go out to eat with 2 other couples for their birthdays. I'm tired! HA....need to stay home and work around here.
Hoping all is well with you...you have been in my prayers.
PS...almost done with Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball (got behind this week on reading)...LOVING that book! :0)
Talk soon,
Blessings to you,
Tanya

With 4 boys, it's best if I do the fast method that I learned from my sister: a bag of baking chips(peanut butter, chocolate, etc.), and a container of frosting of your choice. Melt the baking chips (microwave or double boiler method), mix in the frosting, and put in fridge or freezer to set. My favorite is the peanut butter chips with cream cheese frosting - oh so divine!!! Now, that being said, I do like doing the old fashioned fudge when I do have time. ;-)
